Police: Man Shot Videos Under Women’s Dresses At Mall, Other Stores

June 15, 2017

Police have arrested a man they say was using a cell phone to record videos under women’s dresses in several Pensacola stores.

The suspect – Michael Donson, 25, of 1821 E. Hatton Street, Pensacola – was arrested after he used the camera on his cell phone to take videos underneath women’s dresses in various retail and convenience stores. He was first arrested May 31 and charged with four counts of video voyeurism.

Now police say videos of at least 18 additional victims have been phone on his cell phone camera.

Two women notified police on May 21 after they saw Donson trying to use his camera phone to photograph beneath their dresses while they were walking around  Ross Dress for Less in Cordova Mall.

Detectives Chad Willhite and Shannan Briarton believe Donson made the videos between May 7 and May 21. The investigation initially identified four of the victims. Willhite said 26 videos were found on the suspect’s cell phone after he was arrested.

Willhite said Donson is believed to have targeted adult women who were wearing dresses and in at least one case he videotaped a woman wearing short shorts.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect and believes he may have tried to videotape  underneath their clothes is asked to contact Detective Chad Willhite at (850)  435-1972 or  Detective Shannan Briarton at (850) 435-1978.

Donson remains in the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $110,000.

    If he was in for attempted murder he would only have $25,000
    Dollars bail. I do not understand the system. What he did was wrong but $110,000 bail? Am I missing something.
